Clifton Triplett is the Cyber Advisor in the Office of Personnel Management. Mr. Triplett comes from SteelePointe Partners, a global management consulting company. In the wake of the cyber security attacks and the fingerprint theft of millions of federal workers and their families, including retirees and contractors, security is not only sensitive but a key determinant as to the tenure of the OPM Director and the Cyber Advisor.
Mr. Triplett has over 30 years of experience under his belt with military experience as well. Mr. Triplett is a graduate of the U.S. Naval Academy and seems to have the knowledge and discipline needed to form partnerships and put strategies in place that just might protect the safety and security of federal workers going forward. When a candidate has military experience on their resume it somehow just reads better and tells another story. Military personnel are trained first and foremost to be leaders and take on responsibilities through a collaborative effort. Who knows better than military personnel how to work in a team?
Mr. Triplett certainly has his work cut out for him but with his work experience in some of the major Fortune 200 companies he just might have what it takes to prevent another breach of security for federal workers.
